Absolutely Gluten Free Adds Delicious Tahini Snack Bars to Their Portfolio
**Full Disclosure: I received product in exchange for my review, but not to worry, all opinions are 100% mine.
If you are looking for a snack bar that tastes really good and is still healthy for you, try an Absolutely Gluten Free TahiniBAR. This bar is made from Sesame Seeds which are an excellent source of vitamins & minerals and they are really, really good. I know because I got to try them. These healthy bars are small, but they sure pack a punch in the way of healthy. I also love the texture of these bars too. I would describe it as almost crunchy but more melt-in-your-mouth. What you say? Well, I guess you are just going to have to try them yourself to see what I’m talking about. The TahiniBAR comes in three flavors; Cocoa Nibs, Pistachio, and Vanilla which are all delicious (my favorite is Vanilla).
They comes in a box of 7 bars (4.4 oz.). These bars are not only gluten free, but are a good source of protein and fiber, and…. wait for it… only 100 calories per serving. Win/win!! This bar doubles as a snack or a light weight dessert. Just enough sweet without loads of calories. Love it!

Absolutely Gluten Free, maker of all-natural crackers, flatbreads, and pizza that are both delicious and gluten-free, is taking on the energy bar category with the launch of TahiniBAR, a grab-and-go sesame seed snack that weighs in at only 100 calories. All varieties are certified OU Kosher and dairy-free.
TahiniBAR is leading the pack in many of today’s hottest food trends.
- Demand for authentic Mediterranean food, particularly seed-based spreads like hummus and tahini, is on the rise in the United States, with even more growth in the forecast.
- The market for healthy portable snacks has seen dynamic growth; bars are more widely available and consumed on a more casual basis than ever before.
- The gluten-free movement continues to gain traction as shoppers become more mindful of diets that support health and wellness. In fact, more than 30% of Generation Z and Millennials say they are willing to pay a premium for gluten-free products.
- Finally, consumers are expecting intriguing new textures and flavors, and they want to indulge in ingredients like fruits, nuts, and chocolate.
Sesame seeds are truly one of the most ancient foods on earth. In fact, sesame plants are the oldest known plant species to be grown primarily for their seeds (pods) and oils rather than for their leaves, fruit or vegetables.
Health Benefits – Sesame seeds are an excellent source of copper, manganese, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, molybdenum, and selenium. These translate into a variety of health benefits including cholesterol-lowering phytosterols, heart health, improved blood pressure, hormone balance, as well as cancer fighting and fat burning properties. Sesame also helps boost nutrient absorption and energy levels, too.
TahiniBAR satisfies all of these demands in a novel new format. Like tahini and its decadent dessert cousin, halvah, the energy bars are made from all-natural roasted sesame seeds. Sesame seeds help boost energy levels and are a good source of vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber, Calcium, Iron, Zinc and potassium. Much lower in calories than many other bars, this 100% gluten-free treat is available in three delectable varieties – Cocoa Nibs, Pistachio, and Vanilla – and sold in packs of 7 bars (4.4 oz.). The MSRP is $2.49 – $2.99 per bar.
